Philosophy shop-in-shop at the Bay Yorkdale is now complete.

The Bay at Yorkdale

Open D Group USA, an international design agency, is pleased to announce the completion of their first design to deliver project in Canada for Philosophy. The shop-in-shop was unveiled on August 15th, 2013 at the Bay at Yorkdale. The Bay is a prominent high-end Canadian department store with 90 stores spanning 8 provinces of Canada. The space tailors to the customers' experience and the high expectations of the Bay shoppers while remaining true to the Philosophy brand identity.

Open D Group’s prior experience working with Philosophy on concepts for stores like Macy’s created a comfortable environment to facilitate the creative process. Open D Group worked to design a series of concepts for the cosmetics brand which can be adapted to multiple environments while remaining true to Philosophy’s brand and values. The original design inspiration was an open book in which each product of the Philosophy line was a new chapter. The book concept was easily adapted to the international market and has proven a successful model for future designs.

While Open D Group has offices worldwide and has completed many international design projects, the design work for Philosophy at the Bay will be the first. This is an exciting new frontier for the design firm who looks forward to completing several other stores or “shop in shop” and case lines for Philosophy at the Bay’s other locations.
